Cron configuration program
I would like to work on one of the configuration programs that are needed in Fedora. Would a tool for the cron daemon be a good start? If so, if anyone has any special feature requests, post them and I will try to include them.
BTW, I do NOT run Fedora - yet. I am looking for a way to help a Linux distribution. If I can help here, I will.
Skills: C expert, familiar with Python and PyGTK, viable C++ skills, and a few other languages.
Booting x86_64 devel tree
Does anyone have any experience with the mkisofs commands to build an
installable DVD? I've recently grabbed a copy of the x86-64 devel tree and
built a DVD iso with a mkisofs command I found in the archives. The resulting
DVD boots fine, but it doesn't find the packages to install on the DVD (works
great until then). I've tried using an FTP and NFS boot option as well, but
for some reason, the devel tree sk98lin driver doesn't work quite right and I
can't build a network connection. Anyway, I'm guessing it's an issue with the
mkisofs command I've used, but I'm hoping someone here can point it out. I
don't see anything in the man pages to show me what's up. The following was
run in the directory containing a mirror of
pub/fedora/linux/core/development/x86_64/. Hope someone can help. Thanks.
mkisofs -J -R -v -T -o fedora.iso -b isolinux/isolinux.bin -c
isolinux/boot.cat -no-emul-boot -boot-load-size 4 -boot-info-table .
up2date, system-config-packages and synaptic
by David Wagoner
My question here is why is the fedora team wasting so
much time developing up2date and
system-config-packages when synaptic is already an
excellent replacement. Even though it uses apt, worst
case would be to get the latest source and code in
support for yum then. I have had nothing but problems
with up2date. I have had packages fail to install and
yet appear to be installed as far as up2date is
concerned, system-config-packages though its getting
better still has a ways to go before it has the
features that synaptic has. If the developers choose
to continue to use up2date and system-config-packages,
I will continue to use the products during the rest of
the test phase but when Fedora Core 2 is released I
plan on switching to synaptic. Synaptic is full of
features, stable and fast. I look foward to seeing
what everyone has to say on this subject.
